Abstract:

A real-time Ada application, an Inertial Navigation System INS simulator, is being developed by the Ada Embedded Systems Testbed Project as a vehicle to analyze issues regarding the use of Ada in the real-time embedded domain and to provide a context for future experimentation. The technical philosophy behind developing a real-time Ada artifact is to 1 select a representative e.g., strict timing demands, multiple concurrent activities, low-level IO error handling, interrupts, and periodic activities real-time application 2 use Ada tasks as the unit on concurrency for the real-time scheduling research community. In particular, the INS simulator most satisfy a set of timing requirements that are similar to an INS with respect to data updating, message transmission, and message reception. This document discusses the top-level design of this application from three points of view data flow perspective, the concurrency and control perspective, and the Ada module perspective.
